A virtual parody of 1950s rock & roll styles, "Queen of the Roller Derby" takes a subject as trivial as roller derby and neatly welds its appeal with rock & roll and sex. A blistering, Little Richard-style groove sets the tone for this fun and un-serious song. A fabulous modulation midway through the song increases the frantic energy here, and the effect is priceless. Recorded for the Leon Live album in 1972 and well as Carney the year before, the live version of the single went to number 89 on the pop charts.

Queen Of The Roller Derby". I'm up in Oakland on a Saturday night Lord, I said I just didn't feel right Goodnight ladies all around But the right one hadn't found me such a bad night I didn't feel right. With queen of the roller derby (Queen of the roller derby) Yeah, the queen of the roller derby (Queen of the roller derby).

Leon Russell:Roller Derby.

And the roller derby program said That she was built like a fridgerator with a head Her fans call her tuffy But all her buddies called her spike. You know that I fell in love with a roller derby queen Round and round, oh round and round The meanest hunk o woman That anybody ever seen Down in the arena. Round and round, go round and round Round and round, go round and round Round and round. Well I could not help it But to fall in love With this heavy-duty woman I been speakin of Things looked kind of bad Until the day she skated into my life.
